Car boot sales conjure thoughts of waking up early, standing in a freezing field, wading through other people’s old crap in the hope of finding a cool, not-too-hipster bargain. Dave Rowntree (Blur) begs to differ – he’s convinced his music and TV mogul pals (Hot Chip, Coldplay, Stephen Fry etc.) to donate their coolest, rarest items to sell for the International Rescue Committee’s Syria response. There’s no entry without an advance ticket so snap one up quick. Grab some cool stuff and nourish your conscience supporting this worthy cause. And if you’re the kind of considerate sociopath that wants to help the refugee crisis but panics at the thought getting caught up in a boot sale frenzy, you can bid on items through the accompanying online auction.
